Seashore allows Mac users to create and manipulate graphics and text. While the software is not as powerful as Photoshop and other expensive graphics editing software suites, Seashore is capable of handling everyday graphic and text editing tasks. One advantage Seashore has over other Mac graphics utilities is its small file size. Further, because of the software's modest hardware requirements, users with older G4 PowerPC processors can run the software. The Seashore software is open source software and available for direct download from the Seashore website.
